Shadfly Folk Art Gallery and Antiques

 Woman Reading A Journal


PhilShadfly Folk Art Gallery and Antiques is located in Port Dover, Ontario

Small naive carving from Quebec of a woman reading the journal. Not signed.  I am pretty sure that I recognize the work, but for the life of me I can't bring up the name.  Research in books and on line didn't come up with anything.  If anybody knows can they please e-mail me, and I'll update it.  That being said, it doesn't matter much as it is a fine, expressive folk carving in excellent condition.  7" tall, 3" wide, 4" deep. 

Shortly after I listed this I was very happy to received an e-mail from a collector friend who identified the artist as Leo Lachance, of Beauceville, Quebec.  circa 1970-80.  Thanks Manny.
